Gettin up while itís still dark, trying to get me a head start.
Bass fishin on a pond in Lyons, a stringer full most of the time
Back home just in time to eat. Cream and syrup on a biscuit sure is sweet
Put on my cap and right back out the door when I was a country boy
I watched my daddy work it every day. Nothing ever tough enough to stand in his way
Now Im a countryman everyday I take a stand
in my ripped blue jeans on my atv my familyís counting on me
Im a countryman, man of steel, I been roughed up and Iím tough as nails
Bullet proof, Iíve been set free. You donít want to mess with me, Iím a countryman
Doin the best I can
I used to wanna ride the ole John Deere, wishin I could rope a steer.
spent some time camouflaged in a tree stand, wishin I could own the land.
wondered how all the work got done. I was trying to have some fun
Back when life was full of joy, when I was a country boy
Last pre chorus:
Now Iím the daddy whose workin every day, I canít let anything stand in my way
